After sending my Globe Tattoo USB Broadband stick off to be repaired, I got it back yesterday. I would have gotten it sooner, except I was not able to schedule picking-up the unit at the center.
Apparently, the tech guys behind the stick cannot identify whatever went wrong with my unit. Heck, even I don’t know what happened. All I know is that the USB device was not detected in any PC or laptop that I put it in.
I also asked the Customer Service personnel at the Center if the Globe Tattoo can be used with Windows 7. He said yes.
I thought that of course it will work in Windows 7… After all, it is a more advanced version, so why wouldn’t it? The Globe Tattoo was probably already broken when I tried it on the netbook running on Windows 7.
So, anyway, since whatever went wrong with my unit cannot be identified, nor repaired, they gave me a new unit.
Well, that’s fine with me. A brand-new Globe Tattoo stick.
One thing wrong with it, though… It’s naked. There was no stickers placed on the new USB stick. On the bright side, I could design my own globe tattoo, and it also looks cleaner. It is all white, but I still snicker for it is naked. Hahahaha… No identifying marks or anything, making it unique in a way.
As soon as I received the new unit, I tested it out, and it was detected by the laptop. I sent a text message, and it worked. I haven’t tested out the internet browsing ability yet, because I have insufficient load balance at the time.
So, here’s to hoping that my Globe Tattoo will work well for a long time.
See you around.
